Hizb 39
Juz 20
And We had certainly sent to Thamud their brother Salih, [saying], "Worship Allah," and at once they were two parties conflicting. (45) He urged them, "O my people, why do you wish to hasten on the evil rather than the good? Why do you not ask forgiveness of God, so that you may be shown mercy?" (46) They said: "We augur ill of you and those who are with you." Salih replied: "Your augury is with Allah. The truth is that you are a people who are being tried." (47) And there were in the city nine persons who made mischief in the land and reformed not. (48) They said: "Swear a mutual oath by Allah that we shall make a secret night attack on him and his people, and that we shall then say to his heir (when he seeks vengeance): 'We were not present at the slaughter of his people, and we are positively telling the truth.'" (49) And they devised a device, and We likewise devised a device, while they were not aware; (50) and behold, how was the end of their device! For We destroyed them and their people all together. (51) Those are their empty houses which We ruined because of their injustice. In this there is evidence (of the truth) for the people of knowledge. (52) We deliver those who believe and take heed for themselves. (53) We also sent Lot, and recall when he told his people: "Do you commit shameless acts with your eyes open? (54) Would ye really approach men in your lusts rather than women? Nay, ye are a people (grossly) ignorant! (55) ۞ His people had no answer but to say, "Expel Lot and his family from the town for they want to be pure." (56) We therefore rescued him and his family, except his wife; We had decreed that she is of those who will remain behind. (57) And We rained down on them a shower (of stones). How ruinous was the rain that fell on those who had been warned (but warned in vain)! (58)
